Youth Leadership Applications 2016-17
Youth Leadership applications are now available for the upcoming year in Youth Leadership (June1 2016-June 1 2017).  Youth leaders are a small group of Incoming Freshman to Seniors that receive leadership training in faith formation, team building, and leadership skills.  Last year we spent a week at the University of Arizona.  This year we will spend a week in San Diego at the University of San Diego and Whispering Winds Catholic Retreat Center.  

Youth Leadership takes commitment and dedication to the training, prepping, and teaching of JAMS sessions.  Space is limited to 21 Youth Leaders.  Take a look at the Youth Leadership Page for more information.  


New This Year:  Student Teachers for Confirmation Class
This year we have 5 slots for Student teachers for Confirmation.  A student teacher helps lead the Confirmation class and assists the adult Confirmation Catechists.  Student teachers must have completed Confirmation and be an incoming Junior to Senior.  Student teachers receive similar training to Youth Leaders but are committed to the teaching of the Confirmation program.  Take a look at the Student Teacher Page for more information. 


Haven May 14th  Mary & the Church
